2nd Sikorsky for the Atlanta School
Sikorsky Global Helicopters recently delivered an S-300C
helicopter to Superior Flight School of Greater Atlanta. The new
helicopter will be used for flight training as the second Sikorsky
Global Helicopters aircraft in the company's fleet. Best known for

training to its program.
Superior Flight School will operate the new helicopter as a
lease-back from a private owner. The company already leases an
S-300CB helicopter and plans to add a second S-300C helicopter to
its fleet in the near future.

range of operations, from law enforcement and utility patrol to
lift operations. With its 950-pound useful load, the S-300C
helicopter combines maneuverability with endurance at an economical
